A new adventure: the Transbay Garden is a five and a half acre spectacular space on the fourth floor of the new Salesforce building. It is beautifully designed incorporating California native plants that vary from plants that survive our local foggy climate to desert drought-resistant plants. This a gentle stroll with spectacular views of the city.
We will take the 10:15 ferry from Jack London Square.

After crossing the Bay to the Embarcadero in S.F. we will stroll along Mission Street for about 15 minutes, then take a gondola up to the gardens. We plan to have lunch back at the Ferry building. We will return on the 2pm ferry arriving back at the Oakland ferry at 2:30.
